TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa Police arrested 70-year-old Gerald Snider for sexual abuse to minor, early Monday night.

FOX23 learned from the arrest report, the victim is a 12-year-old girl.

The victim told police, Snider was babysitting her brother and herself when he locked her in the bedroom.

A witness told police they saw Snider in the bedroom, naked with the 12-year-old girl on the bed.

The witness then told the victim’s brother and he too saw Snider and his sister engaging in sexual activity.

The victim’s brother knocked on the door but Snider told him to, “Go away.”

Then, the victim’s brother called their mother and she picked up her kids and called police immediately.

Once police arrived a search warrant was issued for Snider’s residence.

Officers found girl’s panties in the dresser.

Snider arrested and after he was read his Miranda rights, he admitted that he often locked the victim in his room with him and they slept in the same bed.

The judge assigned to this case has issued Snider to be held in the Tulsa County Jail without bond.

He is being accused of one count of sexual abuse to a minor. 

FOX23 learned Snider was a medical doctor at "Care Family Medical" in north Tulsa. 

Employees there say he no longer works for them.
